Description

She was so sweet and caring, and she's been through so much :( She's a single mother, a very admirable one.

It hadn't, but it had given Delilah an idea for a photo series that had changed her ambition from struggling freelance photographer who barely made rent to successful queer artist with an amazing apartment in Williamsburg. Delilah Green Doesn't Care is the dreamy, steamy, utterly satisfying answer to your craving for an outcast-and-former-mean-girl romance, with complicated step-family relationships thrown in for extra delight. Ruby herself wasn't my favourite character ever, but that then just supports my decision to not want to pop some lmaoo. And I think part of what’s extraordinary about Delilah Green Doesn’t Care is that the book delivers everything you’d want in a romance (it’s sexy, it’s funny, it’s heart-wrenching, it’s tender) alongside a sensibility that feels, to me, effortlessly and unabashedly queer.

Is that the one where the douchebag hid his wife away in the attic and then lied about it to the girl he wanted to bang who was, like, half his age? She'd rubbed elbows with a few agents at the Fitz show and sold one whole piece-granted the patron was currently sleeping in the next room, but Loretta one hundred percent forked over her money before even batting a single lash Delilah's way. Her weird sexual relationship with her baby daddy didn’t make sense as apparently “no casual sex” is a major character cornerstone for her - so why is she sleeping with him when she knows they don’t love each other anymore and they never pursue a rekindling of their romantic relationship anyway? This book follows Delilah and Claire, two characters who had always distanced themselves from each other in their childhood, bonding while attending Delilah's step-sister, Astrid's wedding. On the other hand-the hand that tried to keep Delilah fed and clothed-Isabel Parker-Green had offered her a ridiculous sum of money to photograph Astrid's wedding and two weeks' worth of pre-wedding events.

Delilah had been back to Bright Falls five or six times in the past twelve years-a few Christmases and Thanksgivings, a funeral when her favorite art teacher had died. I'm very, very queer," Delilah whispered, releasing the words slowly while her bottom lip brushed the shell of Claire's ear. The main characters were multidimensional and complex - they have plenty of flaws and sometimes you want to scream at them, but overall they felt relatable and real. Thankfully, the audiobook narrator was fantastic and I gradually was drawn in enough to give the story a solid chance.I loved the small-town feel, and especially the way in which Blake wrote it so that there was no homophobia. A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—from the author of Astrid Parker Doesn’t Fail.

Unfortch, both love interests in this repeatedly say their relationship is "just sex," which means the romance only comes from smut. Claire's daughter Ruby didn't feel like an obstacle to Claire's relationship with Delilah for the most part, and I loved the scenes where watching Ruby and Delilah interact made Claire feel all gooey inside - that's such a cute trope. Her family is back in Oregon but she doesn’t go often because she doesn’t have a great relationship with them.But I will say that I have a sense that queer romance is in a complicated place publishing-wise (EDIT: in terms of queer romance published by mainstream publishers) at the moment: it’s been comprehensively proven there’s a market for it, but I think there’s a natural conflict at the heart of this market concerning the needs of queer readers versus the expectations of the dominant cishet audience. I’ve been having better luck with YA lately so this was a real treat for me to read such a great adult romance.

I loved every hilarious character, every outrageous shenanigan - and most of all, I loved Delilah Green. After you take a moment to take in this gorgeous cover, you're going to want to immediately pick up this debut.

I don’t know if it’s because I listened to it on audio, but the sex scenes were pretty awkward and I just wasn’t feeling it at times. A swoon-worthy, laugh-out-loud romp of a romance, this rom-com deserves to be amongst romantic titans like You've Got Mail, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Sleepless in Seattle. Even when it's a universally beloved new release you really wanted to enjoy and instead just felt kind of meh about, like now.
